Get into this and fund a slice: “LIMBO” will be a short film written and directed by Will Blank based off of the short comic by Marian Churchland in Meathaus SOS (which you can buy on SUPER SALE over to the right there—>). One of the coolest features of this effort is the use of practical puppetry effects to create to wish-granting dog. Check out the Kickstarter page for more information, some nice photos, and the means to contribute dollars to this effort.
For all you Tumblr peoples we now have a sort-of mirror over there feeding these delicious post nuggets right into your dashboard. You asked for it (two people), you got it. This was made possible by this super Jetpack plugin from WordPress which is also allowing these posts to automatically get publicized to Twitter too. I don’t know. Maybe that’s annoying? Well anyway. A few of you wanted the meat feed on Tumblr. So here is where you find it:
There is still no easy way to import the existing meathaus.com blog’s archive into Tumblr with out a bunch of programming crap so you can forget about seeing all the years of old posts over there, but they still are all still here for your browsing pleasure.
Once again, I must warn you out of NSFWness to try to remember not to accidentally go to plain old meathaus dot tumblr because that is someone’s “spank bank” of beefy nude dudes, unless that is what you are after. We are meathauscomics dot tumblr dot com.
And do you remember when meathaus.com was pre-blog, pre-2006? We’ve had a website since 2000 or so. We had a load of layouts we went through including some fun Flash ones in the early 2000s. I found this weird and cool layout file above that is similar to what Meathaus looked like at one point when I taught myself some basic PHP to go along with my HTML and CSS “knowledge” and hacked together a whole website with a backend for each of our members so they could update their own comics and pages and bios and stuff. I was so excited about it until a bunch of people just installed loads of backdoors and bank phishing scams on our server. Bunch of ruiners. Just because I didn’t bother to learn anything about security too. Oh well.

Brandon Graham is thinking about posting new chapters from his book King City 2 on his blog and he’s already posted the first chapter to show you he means business. Above is a preview image from one of his other comics, Multiple Warheadz. Then there is Chris McD’s page of comics he did for Meathaus S.O.S., Meathaus 8: Headgames and Meathaus 7: Lovesongs. Don’t forget Dash Shaw’s ongoing Bodyworld. And then there is Matt Furie’s Boy’s Club comics free to read on his Myspace blog. There’s Jesse Moynihan’s free older comics here and even more and newer ones here.
Matt Furie has updated his site with lots of new artwork. He is in the new Meathaus book, SOS too.
Yeah we still have even more awesome stories in the upcoming issue of Meathaus, “SOS”. These preview panels are from Matt Furie’s pages.
